Taniguchi Garden Study

Taniguchi Garden Study   5 x 10
Picking up where I had left off, this is a watercolor study from the same paintout session at the Zilker Botanical Garden last month. It is the first plein air watercolor I have done since back in the spring. The intent now is to begin each of the sessions with a loose watercolor sketch then move to the more formal acrylic or oil painting. This is the first effort using those steps. The acrylic painting Yukimi Lantern was produced after this one later that same morning. I think Stephanie seems to like this one best and wants to have it in her office.The Yukimi Lantern and Zedler Mill paintings have been selected to be included in a upcoming group exhibition by Plein Air Austin at the Bass Concert Hall in Austin. I am very pleased to be able to participate with such excellent artists and I am looking forward to seeing how well the rest of the group's work is received.
